After releasing two albums together with Judas Priest last century (makes it sound old hey), vocalist Tim ‘Ripper’ Owens and guitarist K.K. Downing reunited in 2021 under the guise of K.K’s Priest and showed they had lost none of their passion for metal with their debut album Sermons Of The Sinner. In a nutshell, it fucken rocked, and now KK’s Priest are back to show that album was no flash in the pain with next week’s release of the follow-up The Sinner Rides Again.
Ripper sat down for a great chat with HEAVY during the week, talking about the album and taking a trip down memory lane.
We also spoke with Phil Campbell & The Bastard Sons, Nervosa, Choirboys and TesseracT in typical HEAVY fashion – i.e straight to the point and entertaining.
